Screen-Shot-2015-10-19-at-2.14.34-PM-300x218The rise in overdose deaths from heroin and prescription painkillers is an urgent public health crisis. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in five high school students has taken prescription drugs without a doctor’s prescription. Heroin abusers often report their foray into heroin began with prescription drug abuse. 

To help combat this epidemic, Judge Michael Astrab of the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court is bringing his “It’s Time for the Talk about Heroin” presentation to Fairview Park. Join the Fairview Park City Schools, Fairview Park Police and Fire Departments, and your fellow community members on November 5 for a conversation about the heroin crisis.
